Company Statement

Edenville Energy’s strategy is to undertake mineral exploration of its portfolio of coal and uranium assets and ultimately to increase the value of its assets through the development of these resources and where appropriate, commence production of these economically feasible assets. Edenville has both coal hosting uranium projects and coal projects. The Company will initially evaluate potential targets within the prospective hosted assets where both uranium and coal are expected to occur together.


The Company will actively manage geological exploration on the licences by implementing a phased strategy that will progressively increase the level of geological understanding for each licence to facilitate more focused exploration and resource development in the longer term. All field work will be conducted by citizens of Tanzania under the direct supervision of Edenville Tanzania, who in return report directly to the Board of Edenville. 


Initial work will consist of a desk-top review involving the collection, collation and reinterpretation of all available historical data, supplemented by regional-scale geological reconnaissance mapping and sampling. This will define the host geological units for mineralisation and allow for progressively more focused and detailed exploration that will potentially lead into a drilling campaign and ultimately ore body delineation and subsequent mineral resource estimations.


Edenville Energy’s southern projects lie at the crossroads of the Mtwara Development Corridor Program, a regional development initiative involving areas of four co-sponsoring countries (Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania), that are or can easily be served by the Indian Ocean port of Mtwara.


The program includes the development and rehabilitation of roads, lake ports, pipelines, and air transport facilities, many of them with private sector participation.

Current Operations



Rukwa Coalfields Overview

• The coalfields of Tanzania have been known since the beginning of the last century.

• Coalfields last explored in 1950's by Tanganyika Geological Survey (TGS) and the Colonial Development Corporation (CDC).

• Only recently have modern exploration methods been applied to a number of the known coalfields.


2012 Work Programme – Coal Focus:

The company is fully funded to undertake the proposed 2012 work programme.

• Maiden JORC compliant resource at Mkomolo announced April 2012




· Company is investigating the Mkomolo Basin on the Rukwa Coalfield, one of Edenville's three known coal deposits on the field

· Maiden inferred JORC compliant Mkomolo resource of 39 million tonnes (39Mt) @ 17 MJ/kg (float density - 2.0 and Yield - 26%)

· Phase 1 drilling at Mkomolo covered a strike length of approximately 6km

· Mkomolo remains open to the north, potentially for a further 3.5 km, and down dip

· The 2012 drill programme will delineate these extensions to the Mkomolo coal seams and also test the Muze and Namwele Deposits

· Geophysics and drill contracts signed, field work to commence May 2012


• Q2 2012 - extensive drill program will test extensions to the Mkomolo coal deposit allowing the upgrade and expansion of the current 39Mt inferred resource.


• Q3, Q4 2012 - Test drilling of the nearby Muze and Namwele





COAL Strategy

• Key project:- Rukwa Coalfields.

• 3 additional prospective coal projects.

• 2 projects prospective for uranium in central Tanzania.

• Exploration and development of coal for domestic and regional sale.

• Coal licences in Southern Tanzania form initial exploration focus.

• Situated within Mtwara Development Corridor- East African economic growth zone.

• Rukwa Coalfields project acquired in Q3 2010.


Coal in Tanzania

• Huge regional market supporting scalable mining operation.

• Low cost mining environment.

• Situated in Government backed economic development zone.

• Active coalfield development (Atomic Resources) 18km from Matiri licences.

• Government long term aim to create transborder trade and investment, linking Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia.

• Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the National Development Corporation (NDC) of Tanzania and the Henan No.1 Thermal Power Construction Company (HPPC) of China relating to the construction of a 400Mw power station.



Tanzania and Uranium

• Mining code fully supports exploration and production.

• Highly active uranium exploration region (Tanzania, Malawi, Uganda and Zambia).

• Feasibility Study (with 84 million pounds of U308) 120km from Edenville Matiri licence.

• Pre-feasibility study (Uranex NL) underway 60km from Edenville Ikungu licence.

• Close proximity to coastal export routes – good existing infrastructure.

• Political very stable.
